Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to add a kinect input (c++)

Hi, i'm really new to UE, i have handled to develop some projects with blueprints and i have no problems there with the inputs, but now im tryng to create an input using c++, i want to connect my kinect 1.8 on the unreal engine, so what i need to do is to create a new input using c++ and add it as a "node" so i can use it in the blueprint, i dont know if i explain myself in a good way.


  1. I need to find a way to create an input with c++ (i know how to work with kinect so i just need the UE-C++ knowledge)

  2. Add the input to the project so i can use it like a normal key input(or something like that)

If someone know how to, or what i need to i'm gonna be really thankful,

PS: I had read everything i found on google, and in the UE forum and watch videos.

Product Version: UE 4.7

I actually figured it out how to do it, now i can export my packaged project with my kinect sdk 1.8! Thanks to documentation, we now have an easy way to do it, we actually show this on a event ("TAD") and i'll edit this post once i got the videos of our presentation there, greetings !
